Cool but the projectile is very close to the trans-sonic region. 
That is impressive, but his future attempt at 6,000 yards may be too far. 

There is also the “how many shots” theory:
Boomer can launch 750 grains 6+ Miles, but goes transsonic in just under half that. 

Given enough ammo and “shotgun mode” Boomer should be able to hit a target at 6 miles.

gotta laugh at :  "Unfortunately, the Guinness Book of World Records likely won’t recognize Poor’s record-breaking shot. Apparently, they don’t recognize any shooting records made with optics"

could care less about the "longest shot" - but jeeeeez, Guinness "recognized" these things, but no shots with optics ?

Maybe we need to start the “TGF book of world gun records”?
